Sadly after a lot of research online I was unable to find out who put these beautiful thoughts together, some attributed it to Andy Rooney, but his publicist said these are not his words. Whomever collated them we thank you, because they are perfectly vibrational.

Merry Christmas everyone. As I shared with you in my blog on December 20th for the next twelve days I am inviting you to bring in twelve vibrational frequencies of Christmas.
Today is ground zero... an opportunity for you to change up your vibration.
Day 1 - The vibrational frequency of new beginnings for our world
Each day, as you embrace each new frequency, ask yourself this question...
“What can I do to bring this frequency into being?”
Vibrational Blessings Debbie A. Anderson
For any of you who didn’t know this, the strange gifts given to his “true love” within the carol “Twelve Days of Christmas” actually have a hidden meaning behind them.
As a child growing up, I pondered on the possibility of a lover giving his sweetheart bizarre gifts... where do you stash 10 lords a leaping...... and giggling at The Muppets version with Miss Piggy screeching out.. 5 GOLD rings badam-pam-pam.
Here are the twelve traditional days of Christmas and the meaning for each day.
On Twelfth Night (usually) Christmas decorations were taken down... to leave them up after that date was deemed unlucky. Twelfth Night, marks the beginning of Epiphany on 6 January, the Christian feast day when observers celebrated the visit to Jesus by the Magi - known to us all as the Three kings, or Wise Men.
Now I have explained the traditional 12 days of Christmas I want to invite you to embrace, starting December 25, Twelve new possibilities for you to consider.
Each day I will post on my blog one of the Twelve Vibrational Frequencies of Christmas for you to attract a higher resonance in 2019. I challenge you to expand each vibrational day with words you feel create further connectedness with each one of the twelve vibrations I will share from December 25 to January 5, 2019.
And.... when you are ready, answer this question to each of them... “What can I do to bring this frequency into being?”
Maybe it is an inward change or an outward action... as always, the choice is yours... when you are ready.

Author & lecturer Leo Buscaglia (known as Dr. Love) told of a time he was asked to, through a contest, find the most caring child.
What I love about these stories is the vibrational frequency that is emitted from a child’s heart. Below is the winner and some of the other heartwarming innocence that comes from children who see everything unconditionally. Sometimes we need to look through the eyes of a child to really SEE!!!
A four-year-old child, whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman, who had recently lost his
wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old Gentleman's' yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.
When his mother asked him what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy just said, 'Nothing, I
just helped him cry.'
Teacher Debbie Moon's first graders were discussing a picture of a family. One little boy in the picture
had a different hair color than the other members. One of her students suggested that he was adopted.
A little girl said, 'I know all about Adoption, I was adopted..'
'What does it mean to be adopted?', asked another child.
'It means', said the girl, 'that you grew in your mommy's heart instead of her tummy!'
On my way home one day, I stopped to watch a Little League base ball game that was being played in a
park near my home. As I sat down behind the bench on the first-base line, I asked one of the boys what the score was 'We're behind 14 to nothing,' he answered with a smile.
'Really,' I said. 'I have to say you don't look very discouraged.'
'Discouraged?', the boy asked with a puzzled look on his face... 'Why should we be discouraged? We haven't been up to bat yet.'
Whenever I'm disappointed with my spot in life, I stop and think about little Jamie Scott.
Jamie was trying out for a part in the school play. His mother told me that he'd set his heart on being in it, though she feared he would not be chosen. On the day the parts were awarded, I went with her to collect him after school. Jamie rushed up to her, eyes shining with pride and excitement.. 'Guess what,
Mom,' he shouted, and then said those words that will remain a lesson to me....'I've been chosen to clap and cheer.'

In life we have random moments... one after another... and sometimes we actually listen and follow through... on that haphazard thought... without attaching anything to it... no requirements... no needing to know... just taking one step after another not expecting a perceived outcome....
It does all start with that casual thought. That moment when you just do something because you feel an inner feeling...... guidance... direction.
Take my day yesterday. I went out to mail out a deck that had been purchased online at my website. I stood in the lineup, and looked around the very familiar spot I go to almost daily to ship out orders (thank you spirit). But today my eye caught a postcard of Point Pelee, it was prepaid to anywhere in the world, so I immediately thought of my son Russell, who last year came to visit me in Canada. We walked out to the “point” something I hadn’t done in the 4 years I have lived in Leamington. And, that was that random moment I followed through & bought the postcard.
I then was craving a trim, my hair was getting way too long for me, it was messing, untamed. But the hairdresser was packed, an hour wait, hmmm way too much to do. So my day continued like any other day, focusing on my wonderful work. Later Chris had to go out to see his mechanic for the corvette, so asked if I wanted to come along for the ride. Why not, sunny day, cooler than it has been so I was in.
After we had finished his “business” I asked if we could just drop back into the hairdressers, and yes, they could cut my hair. Again, a random decision – unplanned, not orchestrated. Chris then suggested going for a beer, I was in, the temperature was pleasant and I wanted to sit outside, so we decided to go to the golf club looking over Lake Erie, only to be told NO, the management were concerned about the bugs.
Hmm, Fish flies had just finished, so we then, on the spur of the moment went somewhere else, a place we had not been to in a long time that we knew had a patio overlooking the lake. As we pulled up & got out of the car this voice shouts over “Debbie ... it’s you!” We embraced in complete surprise, because the last time we had met over a year ago she was heading out of Province. She shared “I was going to go for a bike ride, but spirit said get in the car and go to Freddys.” so she followed through. Wow I thought, this wasn’t our first choice, but obviously spirit guided us here too... at this exact moment when Amanda would be here. That chance meeting -synchronistical. She then shared her travels and explained currently she was working at Point Pelee... I laughed and pulled out the postcard I had purchased earlier.
In that moment, we sat KNOWING this was a divine invitation for us all.... not knowing the “what” or the “why” but allowing our intuition, our inner guru to guide us to this exact point in time for this meeting.
We sat, talked and listened. We shared and allowed that moment, when the three of us where connected spiritually to just be. In synchronicity. In pure awareness. Even still not knowing what or why we had been brought together, but embracing the moment.
Questions, thoughts, sharings... then as we were preparing to say goodbye, the song from Flashdance came on.. What a Feeling... take your magic and make it happen... take your passion and make it happen.... What a feeling, Bein's believin'..I can have it all.
What more could we have asked for in that divine appointment we had turned up for? A clear and concise message for us all!
Thank you spirit for everything you send to me EVERY single moment. Thank you for engaging my consciousness into being present, turning up, being in the NOW moment every step of the way.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Now invite in the moments that occur without knowing why... it all starts with just a thought!.
Vibrational Blessings, Debbie A. Anderson
Sometimes things.... life don’t quite go the way we planned. And sometimes, during that chaotic interlude, we can have our world turned upside down and inside out even if we feel we are spiritually attuned. Yes, that is right, perfection in all things can take time so don’t beat yourself up. (smile)
This time of year especially can push all those buttons and momentarily have us spiralling down that rabbit hole of doubt.
Just a while ago I encountered something that rocked my world. Seems this year for me has been related to integrity and honor or should I say the lack of it in many humans and light workers at the moment. So when it hit me, I felt like someone had punched me in the stomach and I was spiritually winded. I kept hearing spirit saying over and over to me, this is just a glitch, let it go... you are blessed, you are blessed.
That afternoon I opened an email from Caroline Kimsey, the leader of a wonderful virtual healing group I belong to who sent us all the story of the snow globe which I am sharing with you today.
She wrote “I was thinking that each of our lives is rather like being in a snow globe. In the middle is us and we fill our "globe" with the people and animals we love, then add layers of other things we enjoy having around us ... imprinting each snow flake in our globe with the energy that makes us happy, safe and generally at peace.
But sometimes at the bottom of the globe are old snowflakes imprinted with things that no longer fit or serve our lives that we have taken on from others or perhaps misunderstood when we were younger and made a part of our inner world. These still lie under the surface while we carry on making our new memories and joy and then all of a sudden something or someone comes and shakes it all up. When our globe is really shaken (which is exactly what it feels like to me when I get discombobulated by an unexpected happening). The things buried deep beneath the surface are stirred up and we feel unable to centre for a while until we ground and breath and take stock of "What just happened".
But remember the snowflakes in the air are full of the things that are your truth now.... are what you want in your life that you have made for yourself. I think the best thing about having your personal snow globe shaken up is discovering what does need to be let go off and what you are still holding on to and not only gaining your own equilibrium more quickly, but getting to a stage where you can stand steady in the middle of your world without being shaken up yourself and possible calm others too.
I saw someone very dear to me who was in most ways having a very positive and good events happening in her life. But one thing came along which shook up her personal globe and she could not see the other lovely things around her. She could only focus on the perceived negative one, almost in a way shaking the debris in her own world and not allowing herself to centre and see things more clearly.
We can all do this at times, but if we really want to love ourselves and others we need to try not to, or at least let ourselves settle as quickly as possible. If we even hold on to one thing that over stimulates our nervous system we cannot have calm in our inner or outer world”.
I always share, that spirit will send us a message... a communication when we need it. That day spirit sent me the vibrational words of Caroline Kimsey, in such divine timing.
In this next short while, when we get busy for the celebrations ahead, take a moment to sit in stillness... reconnect to the inner YOU vibration, and if others around you shake up your snow globe... take some beautiful cleansing breathes and remind yourself how far you have come in your life..... why you chose what you do.... in life....... with your family & friends and in your Universe. Then exhale knowing all this too shall pass and all will be well.
Sometimes when we are in awareness, the divine enters into our soul, so listen and be heart centred always. Be in joy and gratitude of the way they make sure we get the answers we need WHEN we need them.

I have been asked many times “what is the easiest way to meditate?”. What I will share are just my thoughts which is just the way I learnt to meditate.
What I believe is meditation is about is resting your mind and connecting with your consciousness to achieve peace, quietness and hopefully find your bliss.
Of course for anyone who has tried to meditate knows, often the mind itself is the biggest obstacle that stands in our way to our own awareness.
What I am hopeful meditation will do for you is to invite your vibrational essence to connect with YOU in an effort to help YOU achieve what YOU need at any given time.
Meditation is a tool to assist you in your day to day life. It is deemed to help reduce stress, anxiety, depression and even lower blood pressure. Basically, it can help improve the health and wellbeing of your mind, body and soul.
Here are some of the meditation techniques I suggest to anyone wanting to embrace this experience.
What I hear so often is people struggling with the fact that their mind doesn’t slow down enough, or wanders off while attempting meditation. If it does, then let it be. Try not to fight it, otherwise you will be negating any emotional benefits and frankly making yourself feel more stressed than when you started.
I would like to encourage you do what I call a mindful meditation. This is allowing your mind to focus on something, be it an image, a word, or maybe a card pulled from an oracle or affirmation deck. This allows your thoughts and feelings to create a mental image based on what you have seen, observed. If you prefer add some background music that soothes your soul. All this is doing is opening up your awareness to infinite possibilities.
After you have sat for a few minutes, open your eyes and write down anything and everything you felt, sensed or saw during that process. Maybe there were images, words or thoughts, whatever you write in your journal will help you to open up your intuition and awareness. Remember, there are no wrong thoughts. They are just thoughts, so the more you can release them, the more you will be able to relax.
Meditation should not be an endurance test. So I am hopeful what I have shared will start you on your journey to your own self enlightenment and bliss. After all, you are a vibrational being!

Yesterday I was walking with a group around the Labyrinth in Leamington. Being in the moment I realized that I could explore that time and just let my vibrational energy flow freely, without restrictions. Amid the pulling out weeds, which I will share with you in a later blog, I came across a little twig. It was just sitting there on top of the boxwood hedge. As I was the last one on the walk I wondered if the others that had walked ahead of me had seen it, or whether it had just appeared for me, right then.
I picked it up, because there was a reason, even if it was not known to me. Drifting back into my thoughts, I let the twig turn gently in my fingers allowing me to see it from all angles without any agenda or reason. That’s what I call being in the Now Intention and boy is it enlightening.
This little sprig of wood was at some point in its existence part of a bigger tree, that would have stood in strength reaching its branches out to the Universe. And below, it would have been attached by its roots that went deep down into mother earth. Connecting us to both Heaven & Earth with branches and roots stretched out. As above, so below.
Then in a moment this little twig would have broken away, so I could find it, and pick it up and spend time in contemplation. What a gift I thought. Just for me.
As my walk came to an end, I realized I no longer had the little twig in my hand. My thought was that during my weed pulling the little twig had yet again continued on its journey and our time together was at an end.
Leaving those thoughts behind I ventured through my day feeling very blessed. It wasn’t until I went to bed last night that I felt something on the bed.... yes, it was my little twig, who had somehow come home with me. How, I have no idea, truly I don’t because I didn’t have any pockets in my clothing. So whether it was divine intervention or just a fluke it doesn’t matter.
Was my little twig a gift from heaven with the purpose of writing this blog? Or just because it wanted to remind me that trees are never limited. They are in balance and harmony with nature. The branches are always extending out reaching upwards seeking the light & nourishment. The branches will shelter & protect us. A tree stands strong, ever growing, ever changing.
After all, life is dependent on our own self awareness. Expanding and evolving as and when we are ready. Our vibrational essence knows that there is ALWAYS another way if something doesn’t work out for us, we just have to adapt and transform accordingly being OPEN to receive.

Late one evening I was reflecting on my day and if I had been vibrationally in sync with everything I had done. Was I on the right track with my work in that moment? I have to share, this is not a question I ask myself on a regular basis, so I considered that as it had come into my mind, perhaps there was something that shifted in me in that moment. I sat for a few minutes to reflect upon my perception of that day and what it meant to me and why was I questioning it?
I try to share with everyone, that when we get thoughts like this to tap into it in the “now” moment. Maybe I needed to be aware of something that spirit were trying to share, but I was too busy to acknowledge it. Life can be demanding, we get engaged in it, and so we should. So for me, I just sat for an instant to contemplate.
I knew I felt good about what I had achieved, so that is where I put my thoughts to rest. It was then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a tiny piece of paper floating down to the floor, just a few feet from my desk. I bent down in curiosity and picked it up. The message was from a fortune cookie I must have saved. It said “others see you as a wise person”.
So, there in a nano instant, spirit had sent me a clear message.
If anyone has ever been in my office and seen my desk you will know that it is a place where all positive pieces of paper are housed, abandoned if you like. So when I am working at my laptop, when I look out at the wall I am seeing images of positive vibrations staring back at me.
But how did it float up above me, across the room behind my chair? I concluded this could have only been sent from heaven, so in my acceptance of receiving the message I thanked spirit for reminding me that I am on track.
Next time you start to wonder about yourself, your perception of you, just step back and wait, because spirit will send you your own special message.
